Today, I went on a coffee date. My date blew his nose on a discarded napkin, smoked half of my cigarettes despite "giving up", chewed tobacco at the table and casually invited a friend to join us. His friend spat out his tobacco and poured cough syrup into his coffee. I'll pass on a second date. FML

OP here! (I didn't have an account when I submitted this..) Yeah this was a weird, uncomfortable experience for me. I've had dates which were boring or which I wasn't into (and vice versa) but there's nothing quite like watching someone fish out chewing tobacco from their gums and plonk it in a coffee cup while telling you that your eyes are pretty... This was a really nice, upmarket coffee shop and I cringed horribly when one of the servers came to take away the cup, wad of chewed up tobacco and snot-covered napkin and all. Shortly after the friend arrived and poured cough syrup into his espresso, I excused myself... and I declined the request for another meeting. But I still haven't gone back in that coffee shop. Nor have I been brave enough to go on any more dates.

That's just really weird

Damn it! Another perfectly good pun slaughtered by autocorrect.

That's why I prefer tea.

wow, that is crazy for a 1st date, I hope you walked out and did not cough up any money for the bill

Other people misbehaving shouldn't be used as an excuse for you to misbehave.

Who said chivalry is dead

You're into the friend, I'll bet. Am I right?

Yeah, the moment he poured cough syrup into the other guy's coffee, he certainly seemed like a keeper.;)

Straight out of a Meg Ryan or Renee Zellweger rom-com! "You had me at codeine overdose!"

Definitely a bad date, but a good lesson for every reader as to why you only do coffee, and only In a public space, for the first meeting.

Not all men are barbarians OP

I think he's thinking: "So you like bad boys huh?" *puts on shades in head*

Well, at least you found out quickly that the guy is a boor with equally disgusting friends. Back to the drawing board.
